Oberhauser will discuss the ways in which human activities affect monarch butterfly habitats, including her research on habitat management and availability and the risks posed by global climate change and pest control practices.
She has a strong interest in engaging K-12 students and teachers in inquiry-based science and promoting scientific and environmental literacy. As part of the Monarch Larva Monitoring Project, she developed a comprehensive science education program, Monarchs in the Classroom.
